There’s some quick players in the Premier League; but these lads are something else, and could basically all compete in next year’s sprinting World Championships.
Just to put things into perspective, Usain Bolt clocked 37.58km/hr when the Jamaican broke the 100m world-record in 9.58 seconds. And all these 10 lads have clocked under 34.77km/hr in the Premier League this season. Fair play, chaps.
But, who’s the quickest of them all?
10) Hector Bellerin – 34.77
When Bellerin caught up with Pedro in the Arsenal versus Chelsea match, we genuinely thought the Spaniard was in the wrong sport. Amazing that he's only 10th on the list. Source: Independent
8=Maya Yoshida – 34.78
Been in England; on the South Coast for four years, and no-one has heard of the bloke. Still, can't half shift for a centre-back. Source: Turn Style
8=Theo Walcott – 34.78
Theo has been flying, this season. How is the Englishman only eighth on the list?! Source: Arsenal Mania
7) Wilfried Zaha – 34.79
Will the Palace man ever reach those high expectations of him? The 23-year-old will certainly have to rely on his pace, if he is to get to that potential... lightening. Source: Scooperinc
6) Eric Bailly – 34.84
Bloody hell the centre-half has got wheels. Just another quality outlet to the Man United man's locker. Source: Ibtimes
5) Andre Gray – 34.87
Reminds us of a Gabriel Agbonlahor, when the Villa man fancies showing up on the weekend. Scarily quick, useful on the counter, and has a goal in him. Source: Celebmix
4) Jamie Vardy – 35.10
No real surprises here. So imporant to the Englishman's game. The combo of Vardy's pace and work-rate, means all centre-backs need to be on their toes when facing the Leicester man. Source: Reddit
3) Kyle Walker – 35.18
Class player. Has a bit of everything in his game, including speed which has led the Spurs defender to be dubbed London's Roadrunner. Source: Static
2) Lynden Gooch – 35.19
Largely unknown, as did not play a Premier League game last season. However, featured in five this term for Sunderland, and with the midfielder's speed - the bloke has glided past some defenders already. Source: Performgroup
1) Shane Long – 35.31
Ay?! We knew the striker was rapid, but not that bloody quick. If you were a centre-back you wouldn't want to get in a drag race with the Irishman. Source: Independent
